Dior Rose Diamond

Happy Sunday everyone! I've been having a great weekend, and next weekend is sure to be amazing as well, what with the Canada Day festivities and all :) Ottawa is such an amazing city to be in for Canada Day weekend, and this year Carly Rae Jepson and Metric are performing on Parliament Hill. Should be a good time for sure! Now onto today's review, Dior's Rose Diamond ($45 CAD). I reviewed Dior's Amber Diamond about a month ago, and lately I've been getting a lot of use out of the other shade in the Shimmer Powder line, Rose Diamond.

Rose Diamond is a beautiful highlighter that can double as a blush. This powder highlighter contains 5 shades, but I tend to blend them all together and dust it across my cheekbones. I use a Sigma F40 (a blush brush) to apply this highlighter. I really like pairing Dior's Rose Diamond over top of pink blushes, like Benefit's Hervana, NARS' Angelika, and Stila's Convertible Color in Sweet Pea

These Shimmer Powders from Dior are such great quality, and the powder is so finely milled. I would expect nothing less coming from Dior! These palettes are definitely a splurge item, but I do think that they are worth it. Out of the two shade options (Rose Diamond and Amber Diamond), I do think that I prefer Amber Diamond, just because I can use it over more blush shades, and as eye shadows. However, I do love that I own both palettes, and they both do get a lot of love and use. The shimmer in Rose Diamond looks very natural, and never overdone. You only need a tiny amount of this powder on your brush, so this palette will last you ages, especially since the pan contains 10 grams of product (about double the amount found in NARS blushes). 

Have you tried either of Dior's Shimmer Powders? Do you prefer Rose Diamond or Amber Diamond, or do you love them both? What are your favourite highlighters?
